Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need an appointment to tour The Giving Tree Academy?

Yes. We do not conduct walk-in tours. Please call or email to schedule a tour.

Are all staff trained in CPR and first aid?


How do you handle food allergies?

We are a nut free center and if any child has extreme allergies to another food, we ask parents in that child’s class not to bring that item in any bags from home (within reason). All modifications for allergies will be explored on a case by case basis.

How much is the tuition?

Our tuition schedule is provided to families upon touring the school. We do not email or post our tuition schedule online.

Do you offer a sibling discount?

Yes. A ten percent discount is applied to all siblings after the first child.

Do you provide lunches?

No. Parents are responsible for their child’s lunch. We can heat up lunches from home.

How do I enroll my child and do you have a wait list?

You may call or email the school to set up a tour and fill out the required application for enrollment. We do have a waitlist for our current programs and we do maintain a wait list for the convenience of our families. A non-refundable Application & Wait List Fee of $75 is required for consideration of placement. Your child will be placed on the wait list on the date we receive the fee and the completed application. Joining the wait list does not guarantee placement and submitting this application request does not commit you to enroll if offered placement. Please call the school for more information on our current waitlist times and availability.

I noticed the large power lines nearby, do you have more information on them?

Yes. We had an engineer from National Grid out to our site to do a field survey. The survey shows our property within normal and safe range. We also would not have been able to acquire zoning from the city of Cranston or licensing from DCYF if we were not a safe environment. As a mother, whose child will also attend The Giving Tree Academy, I like to educate myself on everything! You can find the field survey from National Grid here as well as a pamphlet on the topic here.
